'It's got everybody nervous:' Overnight shooting rattles Longs neighborhood

Horry County Police respond to overnight shooting in Longs

HORRY COUNTY, SC (WMBF) - Horry County police responded to a report of multiple shots fired around 3 a.m. Wednesday in the Longs area.

According to Horry County Police Capt. John Harrelson, shots were fired into a home in the 2000 block of Livingston Lane.

Harrelson says no one was injured in the overnight shooting.

The police report says when officers got to the house, they found several ammunition casings in the road and grass.

Police say six holes were found in the front of the house, along with one through the front window and two on the detached garage. Inside, police found several rounds of ammunition went through three walls and one round exited through a window out back.

The man who was inside the home at the time told police he didn't know who would do this. He saw a car leaving but didn't see what kind it was or what direction it left in.

Neighbors said this is a tight-knit community where everyone knows everyone. Jonathan Livingston lives on the street where it happened. He said he woke up to what sounded like multiple gunshots, and he didn't realize what happened until he got to a landscaping job at a neighbor's house Wednesday morning.

"Get down on the floor. I knew it was shooting but I thought it was somebody testing a gun, but when I got to work this morning I find out different," said Livingston.

He was born and raised in the community, having lived there for 62 years. Livingston said he doesn't understand why someone would do this to the person who lives in the home.

"Where it happened at, this was a real fine fellow," he said.

Livingston said this incident leaves neighbors and himself on edge.

"Gun fire - it's got everybody nervous," he said.

The investigation is ongoing.
